Rosinter expanding actively
Following the combo (Planet Sushi/IL Patio) restaurant opened in the summer, Rosinter has opened new Il Patio units in Budapest, in Mamut I.centre and Fashion Street and a Japanese restaurant in Mammut II, in addition to a TGI Friday’s unit.

Modest plans
A press conference was held by the Don Pepe chain on its 18th birthday, where results and future plans were announced. At present, Don Pepe has 5 million guests annually, in 34 units. In the near future, they will focus on modernisation instead of expansion.

McDonald’s carrying on
Investment is to be speeded up by McDonald’s, the market leader in the fast food market. 5-7 new units are to be opened annually in the future. HUF 2,5 billion is to be spent annually on new units and the modernisation of existing ones. There are almost 100 McDonald’s units in Hungary at present, of which 55 are located in Budapest.
